ION Solar Donates 10 kW Solar System to Utah Community Action

TOOELE, Utah, Oct. 18, 2019 — ION Solar LLC, a full-service solar provider, donates a 10 kW solar system to Utah Community Action, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive services for income-eligible families. The solar system is being installed on a UCA Head Start Preschool located in Tooele County.

ION Earth, ION Solar’s charitable arm, was created to foster meaningful change in our communities by empowering families, organizations, and individuals with a clean energy alternative.

Utah Community Action is one of the first administrators of the Head Start program in the state of Utah. The agency first provided the national and state-recognized high-quality early education program in Tooele County at Grantsville Elementary.

“I’ve always lived here. Our local farmers have been doing solar and it’s great that we can now also be a part of this environmental shift,“ said Mary Salazar, Tooele County resident and Program Coordinator of UCA. Costs saved from the solar system donated by ION Solar will be used to contribute services back to the community.

“At ION Solar we aim to make giving back an imperative part of our company culture,” said ION President Dave Rasmussen. “ION employees donate their time and expertise to install all of our ION Earth projects. Providing this opportunity for our employees to give back has been a great opportunity for us to build connections and be engaged in our community.”
